at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response to the foreign response
of you folks in the political swamp. former president george w. bush said he had a good time but is never coming back. what he thinks he can do for mitt romney. >>> good morning from washington, d.c. it's wednesday, july 18th, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm luke russert, filling in for mr. chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. mitt romney is aggressively trying to shift the spotlight off his bane background and unreleased tax returns, escalating a counter attack on the president, out with a new ad, continuing the line of attack of croneyism. >> where did all the obama stimulus money go, friends, donors, campaign supporters, special interest groups. >> romneyng thatucce ere partly education and infrastructure or as the president awkwardly put it, if you got a business, you didn't build that. >> to say that steve jobs didn't build apple, that henry ford didn't build ford motor, that -- that papa john didn't build papa john pizza, to say something like that is not just foolishness, it's insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in america. >> but romney'
to include the affluent and any renewal of the george w. bush era tax cuts. people out there in the country, as you mentioned, are trying to get a job. they see the immense challenges this nation faces. why is congress once again going to the bitter end on partisan issues at the expense of the american people? >> well, i'm ready to work to get people back to work. when bernanke was on capitol hill yesterday he said congress should act quickly to pull the united states back from the -- looking into the abyss with this fiscal cliff. yet the person who threw down the gauntlet was patty murray, leader of the democratic party, who said i would rather go over the cliff. that's what she said, she would rather go over the cliff in terms of what's happening with taxes. i think we should not raise taxes on anyone. the president agreed two years ago we shouldn't raise taxes on anyone in economic times like these, but the economy, luke, is worse now than it was two years ago. so, if it was a bad idea then, it is a worse idea now. i want to keep the tax rates as they are for at least a year, when we can
make mistakes. obviously george w. bush in 2000, barack obama made mistakes back in 2008 when he was running for president. it happens. so, look, at the end of the day this is a big, big bruise on the left chin but he will recover. there's no question about it. i'll remind you to put it in context. howard dean was the former democratic chairman and ran for president. so he naturally is a partisan and he will say that. >> to you here, jimmy, alongside all of this has been the issue of fund-raising in london as well, a fund-raiser was held last night for romney in london in fact and many barclays bankers gave money to that. $25,000 to 5,000 were the amounts. involved were executives from banks involved in the interest rate scandal, the investigation that's going on right now in london. does this help with the optics of that 1-99% argument that has been made by critics of governor romney? >> i think that's already solidified in most minds of americans, especially democrats. the question is what do women ages 30 to 50, independents especially, think about this sort of thing. i don't
policy pop quiz that george w. bush faced in 2000. a local tv reporter in boston started peppering him with questions about the names of foreign leaders. he flubbed it, he couldn't rather remember a few. this isn't quite the same effect but it is troublesome for somebody who travels, has been the governor and who in the moment seems to be speaking the truth of what he saw. >> joe scarborough and former governor howard dean weighed in this morning as well. here's what he said. >> what's he going to do in israel? look around and go -- >> i'm a tad bit worried about the trip to israel. >> the palestinians should have all of jerusalem and what's he going to do in poland? say hitler was right? >> this is a disastrous trip from one end to the other. do i think he'll recover? probably. but this is probably the worst trip that any presidential candidate has taken. >> robert, worst trip ever? will he recover? >> of course he will recover. let's put this in context. yes, he's running for president of the united states, it's a very important job but he's human and humans make mistakes. obviously
. >> and talk about the presidency, then you turn in and get what joe was talking about with george w. bush who can't think -- says he can't think of one. everyone in their own lives knows that you make mistakes all the time. all of us tell ourselves a story to explain those mistakes. >> john, the whole thing, he wasn't admitting a mistake. he was taking a perceived weakness of him, all fluff and no substance, and turning it upside down. he is saying i'm the guy getting the job you done but sorry -- i don't think there was weakness in that. >> he does believe this is a mistake. he's not playing a game here. >> jump in. >> joe? >> jon meacham, i want to follow up and underline what you said. i remember one time, again because i'm a dork, i was very young at the time, but i remember following the 1976 republican primary campaign. ronald reagan was asked a question out on the campaign trail, his response, i don't know. >> yeah. >> and everybody just sat there for a second and then they started applauding. it was some of reagan's people said it was a -- it was just a special moment that connected h
george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewers here in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the "today" show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in the past just about everything. here he is switching on the british olympics

, george w. bush never did anything like this. >> worse than dubya you're saying? >> i can't imagine george w. bush doing this. i can't imagine that. he had some sophistication about foreign affairs. this is shocking to me. >> krystal, this is one of those days where i have to say i appreciate the spirit of the british press. they are willing to step right up there and say what they mean. >> yeah. and you grabbed some amazing material. when i was prepping for this segment, i could have gone on for hours because there were so many fantastic tweets and quotes and headlines and so much material to work with. but honestly for mitt romney, there were essentially two goals for this trip, right? to sort of run around looking vaguely presidential and to sort of slyly remind people of his own olympic success. and in one day he's managed to kill both of those things by insulting everyone and looking the opposite of presidential. looking like he can't even handle, you know, the relationship that should have been the easiest, going to the olympics, going to our friends. it really is an incredible thing
and the candidates who win and watching george w. bush do this through two elections, express confidence and faith in america's future. now, there are r plenty of bromide patriotism in romney's speeches, but the core argument he has is negative. and this is very much the framework the democrats had in 2004 about a different problem, the war in iraq. then you had a president who said i know this is tough, but we've got to stick with it, stay the course and we're going to make it to victory. now, the fs a weird looking victory for him, but that was his sales pitch and you had john kerry saying this is terrible, a disaster. i don't know where i stand or where i did before or where i'm going to stand, but in any case, it's going really badly. people would rather have somebody saying i know this is tough, but i have a way out and america always finds its way out. that's where we're seeing in mirror image today. >> karen, as we said, it's a study in contrast today on the campaign trail and there's one area it's stark. just in terms of pure optic, how does an image like the one we saw of the president in
's a pattern here. there's a history of barack obama released 12 years. george w. bush released eight years of tax returns. bill clinton eight years. ronald reagan at least six years. romney -- willard romney, just two years. even his father when he was running for president, george romney, released 12 years. so it's the appearance that you're not being transparent. >> right. what's really remarkable about this is that mitt romney very well could become president and he could do it while going through less of a vetting than his own nominees will go through. you know, you can't be a deputy assistant secretary at the department of transportation giving up the amount of information that he's giving up. so -- and i don't think he's going to be able to get away with only releasing this one year. but we don't know what's in those returns. maybe he made the calculation what's in those returns is so damaging politically to him he'd rather take this heat. maybe he took some tax amnesty a couple years ago and that's why he doesn't want to do it. >> but, ryan, when you look at that and i'm stepping on

george w. bush did in 2004 in trying to define john kerry. they are doing it on certificate rides in a way we've not seen before with the amount of money and ground game behind it. they've made that choice. whether it works or not we have four months to see. it's totally different. megyn: why do they care about iowa's six electoral votes with all due respect. >> if he can put together the traditional republican states in this election the must win ohio and florida and thanks to karl rove plus one, one more, then mitt romney wins and iowa has got enough. megyn: you're seeing the numbers there is a piece out of the washington times from yesterday or today talking about how president obama is down with young voters, he's down with black voters, he's down with low-income white voters, he's down with post graduate white women and so all of these sort of, you know, erosions in his support are leading to a sense of concern about states that he did win handily the last time around. chris stirewalt thank you, sir. megyn: more for you now on why iowa matters so much for the president. his c

. but had's making the outreach. george w. bush did it as a candidate but then went several years without showing up at the naacp as president. >> yes, he did. i remember. he went in 2000 and never appeared again. >> yeah. i think -- i at tend he may have appeared at the naacp group. yeah, you are right. basically, though, a lot of antipathy built up over the years because of that. romney is making the outreach. he gets points for that. he also is running against the first black president. and so the fact he shows up as important. he made good points. i thought the idea of school choice is a great issue to go after the black vote with because democrats are tied to the futures union, opposed to anything involved in choice. rank and file, black folks like it. the problem was, you know, once again, he had the words but not the music. i think -- you know. in that way he -- he didn't win a lot of black votes today. >> part of romney's problem is, one, he's mitt romney. also, he's the presumptive nominee of a party that by generally speaking has either ignored african-americans or scapegoated a
in the united states. going back over the last ten years, since george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewer here is in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the today show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in the past just about
rights, were not a fan of george w. bush. there was the war, two wars, several other issues, to say the least, but you're watching, you write in your book you're watching the state of the union address, you lived in the states on and off, you've had a home in atlanta, you're watching the 2003 state of the union address. tell me about your reactions to watching george w. bush announcing the billions of dollars that he was going to ask for to be appropriated for global aids. >> i remember jumping up and punching the air but also, at the same time, feeling that i swallowed a boiled egg. i couldn't believe it. it was just a wonderful, again, a pivotal turning point in the treatment of aids people throughout the world. and when i got my kennedy center honor and spent some time with him and rumsfeld and condoleezza rice and colin powell backstage at the interval of the concert, we had a wonderful ten minutes of conversation. he was very informed about aids. i wasn't on the same political, you know, page as him. i didn't agree with a lot of his policies. but he impressed me greatly. >> in
was up here in the primary with the candidates including george w. bush have been in fall in six presidential campaigns. now seven. hopefully i will continue in new hampshire. it is such a critical state. it is great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i knew he was a great friend said john mccain. he was doing a little bit of everything on the campaign trail. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. he is engaging in a presidential campaign. if you are an entrepreneur and a risk taker, you need a business environment. part of that will be dictated by washington. right now all the unpredictability in our economy, it is not difficult to get people to take a risk and to do what steve has done and what my family has done an ohio. my father was a small business guy who took a risk. he left his job in sales and started his own business. i asked him whether he would do it again. he said, i do not know. there's so much uncertainty out there. you have a government that does not seem to get it. they're making it more difficult and not easier to get jobs. steve has taken r
last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen
president george w. bush nominated him as u.s. attorney for the district of new jersey a position held through 2008. in that role he drew national attention battling political corruption, corporate crime, human trafficking and gang violence and directed his attention to ethics during his tenure and spearhead add number of aggressive investigations against corrupt public officials and was able to build and inpressive 130 convictions during this time period. but what you may not know is that like many true new jersey natives, governor christie is a dedicated bruce springsteen fan. top date he's attended 129 springsteen concerts. that dates over 36 years. he told me in advance. so that is a bipartisan issue on which everybody can agree. this morning, governor christie will make opening comments and then we will have a moderated discussion led by brookings seener fellow ted gair who co-directed as brookings. this event is being web cast and viewers can post comments and xp questions during the discussion at twitter #bichristie. so, please, join me in welcoming governor christie to the broo
drug benefit created by george w. bush. and a lot of it comes from cleaning up the mess the republicans created and wall street created. but beyond that, mitt romney is in absolutely no position to talk about whittling the debt down when he's advocating a gigantic tax cut for the wealthy that is not going to even pay for. he has not shown how he is going to close whatever loopholes he said he's going to close. so it's a both dishonest and hypocritical message. i think democrats ought to be standing up to it and saying it is dishonest and hypocritical and blaming romney for not having a single new idea for bringing jobs back. not a single idea. >> mr. bernstein what i see feeding that narrative, whether it's fact or fiction we can discuss, but even if it is fiction is the supreme court deskigs having been up yesterday constitutionally as a taxing authority of the congress i can tell you, i answered phone, i host a radio program where i hear from people who say, see that, i knew i was going to get whacked with a tax to pay for obama care. largely the people calling asserting that have hea

at running mates and teams, is it al gore and clinton, is it cheney and george w. bush? who in the past, is it george herbert walker bush and ronald reagan? what's your role model for what a good vice president should be. is it joe biden? >> i haven't really given that a lot of thought or studied the dynamic or synergies between the vice president and the president in years gone past. i would want to give that some thought and give you a more thoughtful answer but just off the cuff, i would say if you look at the relationship that ronald reagan had with george bush, h.w. bush, that seemed to be a healthy, dynamic and constructive relationship. i'm sure there are others. but just off the cuff, that would be one that would be worth further review and study. seems they had a good relationship and good partnership. >> people are talking about senator portman, one of your colleagues, because of ohio and the importance of ohio. clearly minnesota is not considered a swing state here. the last time it actually voted for a republican -- >> 1972 is the answer. it's the longest unbroken streak of
